31 July 2014
Kevin Wilhelm and Anthony Ellis were accused of murdering 18-year-old John Muldowney by stabbing in June 2010 and both were convicted of murder at the first trial. Their murder convictions were quashed in late 2013 by the Court of Appeal and a re-trial ordered.
Mr Ellis, represented by Garden Court North Chambers’ Nina Grahame (instructed by Mary Monson Solicitors), was convicted of manslaughter at the re-trial. His co-defendant, Mr Wilhelm, was again convicted of murder.
